MakeCode automatically saves programs on the device that you are using. However, these programs may be deleted if your browser history is deleted. This will describe ways to save a program more permanently or share it with another person.
Downloading a File
Instead of downloading a program’s .hex file to the Finch, you can download it to your computer or Chromebook. After clicking Download, select the location where you want to save the .hex file and click Save. You can then email the file, store it on a USB drive, or treat it as you would any other file.
Loading a File
To load a file that you have saved in a .hex file, click on the Home button in MakeCode. From the home screen, click on the Import button.
Click on Import File.
Click on Choose File and navigate to the file you saved. Select it and then click Go ahead! Your file will open in MakeCode.
Sharing a File
To share a file, click on the Share button in MakeCode
Click Publish Project.
MakeCode will show you a link that you can share with others. Alternatively, you can also click Embed to see code to embed your project in a website.
